### Question 1

A merchant is selling cloth at a profit of 254%. If the cost increases by 18%, but he continues to sell at the same price, then what is the new profit percentage?

**A**

200%.

**B**

300%.

**C**

100%.

**D**

400%.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the cost price be CP. Then the SP = CP x (1 + $254/100$) = $354/100$ × CP. New CP = (1 + $18/100$) × CP, which is $118/100$ × CP. New Profit% = (SP/CP - 1) × 100, which is $(({354/100 × CP}/{118/100 × CP}) - 1) × 100)$, which becomes $(354 - 118)/118$ × 100 = 200%.
